White Horse Theatre am Stephaneum

09.01.2020 / Aktuelles


von P. Buchmann

Am 02.12.2019 war es wieder Zeit für das jährliche Gastspiel des White Horse Theatre an unserer Schule. Wie in jedem Jahr waren die 3 Vorstellungen für unterschiedliche Klassenstufen gut besucht - insgesamt 26 Klassen und Kurse konnten daran teilnehmen. Im Anschluss an die Vorstellungen bestand die Möglichkeit, noch kurz mit den sympathischen Schauspielern, die diesmal alle aus unterschiedlichen Teilen Großbritanniens stammten, ins Gespräch zu kommen und Fragen zu stellen. Diese Möglichkeit wurde nach zwei Vorstellungen eifrig genutzt. Für die Schüler ist es immer wieder eine tolle Gelegenheit, die englische Sprache außerhalb des gewohnten Englischunterrichts zu erleben.

 Es folgen Berichte von Schülern über die 3 Theaterstücke:


The Empty Chair

Das Theaterstück beschreibt die Situation einer alleinerziehenden Mutter mit ihrem Sohn Robbie. Das Kind war sehr traurig, da der Vater die Familie verlassen hatte. Dadurch blieb der Stuhl des Vaters zu Beginn auch frei – the empty chair.

Eines Nachts landete ein Raumschiff im Garten der Familie. Am nächsten Morgen klingelte ein außerirdisches Wesen an der Tür und stellte sich vor. Das Wesen war neugierig auf die Situation der Familie. Es zauberte dem Kind sein Lieblingsessen, sie unternahmen Ausflüge und es beschützte die Familie vor einem Unfall. Dadurch freundeten sich das Kind und das Wesen an und es nahm die Rolle des Vaters ein, so dass der Stuhl nicht mehr leer bleiben musste.

Am besten gefiel mir am Theaterstück, dass die Darsteller ohne viele Worte die Traurigkeit des Kindes am Anfang und die Freude am Ende zum Ausdruck bringen konnten.

Two Gentlemen

On 2nd December, the White Horse Theatre came to visit the Stephaneum again and performed three amazing plays. The first one, scheduled for grades 5-7, was named “The Empty Chair”, the second one, named “Two Gentlemen” for grades 8-10, and for grades 11 and 12 they showed the play “The Picture of Dorian Gray”. The play “Two Gentlemen” (which is actually a modernized version of a play by Shakespeare) for example told a story about love and friendship between four people. To be more specific, about a guy named Piers, who falls for Julia and even swaps rings with her, but as soon as he changes the school to be with his best friend Vincent, forgets about their love. He suddenly has eyes for Vincent´s girlfriend (who is the principal´s daughter), Sylvia, and even separates the two, by telling a teacher about their relationship, since the whole concept of love is strictly forbidden at their boys only school. Julia then decides to visit their school, dressed up as a boy, since Piers doesn´t reply to her messages anymore. Due to that, she finds out about Piers being untrue to her, and also exposes him to it. In the end, Vincent and Piers stay together as best friends, as well as Julia and Sylvia. Altogether I really enjoyed the play, and I´m sure the White Horse Theatre will be welcomed with lots of anticipation next year as well.

The Picture of Dorian Gray

This year the actors of the “White Horse Theatre” honored us again with three plays on 2nd December 2019. For us 11th and 12th graders they chose a story by Oscar Wilde based on his novel “The Picture of Dorian Gray”. The four actors portrayed the more complicated plot in a comprehensible way with a simple setting and varying - for the time appropriate - costumes.

Dorian Gray is the subject of a full-length portrait by Basil Hallward, who is infatuated by Dorian’s beauty and innocence. Knowing that this beauty will fade Dorian wishes for the picture to age instead of himself. The wish is granted and he begins a life of scandal, passion and debauchery while staying young.
This storyline was a lot different from those of the plays we had seen before which was very refreshing. Also the way they brought the picture to life was quite interesting. Shane, the actor playing Dorian, additionally portrayed the aging portrait as if he was having a split personality.

In general I really enjoyed the peculiar play and I hope that the tradition of this theatre visiting our school will continue for more years to come. It is always a nice experience and practice for us students outside of our English lessons.
